Police are looking for a Brooklyn mother who abandoned her two daughters, leaving them stranded on the curbside with nothing but diapers.
Domini, 5, and little sister Dioni, 3, were left on the corner in the Canarsie section of Brooklyn.
Domini told a New York Daily News photographer: “Mommy just left us on the sidewalk and drove away.”
A Good Samaritan found her and her sister stranded on a bustling corner in Canarsie. The two girls were found bundled up in hooded down coats, wearing UGG boots and holding fresh disposable diapers just before 3 p.m. in front of the Bay View Houses on Shore Parkway, cops said.
“We don’t know their identities yet,” a police source said. “They gave us their first names and said their mom dropped them off.”
“We live in a blue house with flowers in front,” Domini told The News, as cops took custody of her and her sister.
Domini told cops her mother’s name was Dalisha and she was driving a white car, but couldn’t i.d. the make or model of the vehicle.
NYPD officials said that until they conduct their investigation as to why the children were abandoned, they would not speculate on what charges, if any, the mother could be brought up on.
Anyone with information on the girls is asked to call Crime Stoppers at (800) 577-TIPS.
